Yahoo Gets New Search Alerts For Web, Images & Video

By: Chris Crum - June 28, 2013

Yahoo just made a pair of announcements. One was that Yahoo Mail has some new Flickr integration. The other is that it has a new refreshed, modern Search Alerts experience.

“To help you find hot-off-the-press information on the things that are important to you, like breaking news about a specific topic or the latest images of your favorite celebrity, we’re launching a brand-new Yahoo! Search Alerts experience,” writes Yahoo Search product manager Bhawana Katiyar in a blog post. “All you have do is tell us the topics you want to be alerted about, and we will constantly scour the web for you, emailing you when we find a new hit so that you will always be in-the-know.”

“Yahoo! Search Alerts for Web Search, Images, and Video are joining our existing family of Alerts for News, Fantasy Sports, Horoscopes, Stocks, Travel Destinations, and Weather,” adds Katiyar.

The new alerts are currently only available in the U.S., but more countries are on the way. You can set up your Yahoo Search Alerts here.
